Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 October 2013
KPMG offers great benefits. However you have to be prepared to work. If you have a young family, this is not for you. You pretty much have to dedicate your entire life to the company while employed there. And if you don't have your CA / CGA / CMA, then get it. People who don't have this won't get very far and won't be treated equally.
I worked for KPMG Russia for 9 months at Moscow office, Financial services sector. For me it was a fantastic experience to participate with the team of professionals carrying out audit and interim review procedures. My colleagues were always helpful and friendly seeking to share their knowledge about the audit process with lower-graded team members.
Office Services Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 September 2017
Firm is going back 10 years with their restructuring by just thinking of the dollar. Long term non performing employees are safe because it's too expensive to get rid of them. The short term strong performing employees get the punt.

Manager, Cyber- Full time Employee (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 June 2017
Working at KPMG helped opening up the business world to me. Exposure to sales cycle including RFP responses, proposals, engagement letters and project management are all great things to know. In addition opportunity to network with executive leaders of the business is priceless. In addition, KPMG has a better culture in comparison to other big four. KPMG also has less travel requirements than the competition.
Assistant Auditor (Former Employee) – Cairo, ON – 21 April 2017
kpmg is the biggest school in the world in accounting and auditing it is the the first work i joined but it is mandatory for me to work as auditor because of the unemployment in egypt is high and i love the finance since i was in faculty of business but i didn't find the chance to work in it. The hardest thing in job was the long hours in work and no over time paid for me and one day holiday means no social life
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 4 April 2017
I was only a work experience student but I was still treated with respect and co-workers were very polite and inquire about my day etc. I learned more about how to navigate the little happenings of the office, such as the catering for clients. I also learned of their incentive program where you could give points out to people who helped you out, which would accumulate to prizes through the KPMG points system, and you could get prizes ranging from gift cards to vacations.
Enjoyed the office atmosphere - friendly and supportive staff
Receptionist/Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 9 March 2017
When I started, the company was called Peat Marwick! I found the Richmond branch partners to be very good to work with. I learned a lot and felt appreciated. I only left because I was expecting my first child and I became a full time stay at home mum for the next 25 years!
